On day five of Super Bowl snack week, I am sharing my recipe for guacamole. I make this a lot because it is Ryan’s favorite dip and it is quick and easy. Creamy avocados are mixed with sour cream, lime, spices, fresh tomatoes and red onion to create the perfect dip for those salty tortilla chips. The key is to pick perfect avocados. When picking them make sure that they are firm but give a little bit when you apply gentle pressure.
I have also used this in my seven layer dip recipe instead of using the container of premade guacamole.
- 2 medium avocados
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- juice of 1/2 lime
- 1/4 teaspoon cumin
- 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/2 red onion, minced
- 1/2 tomato, diced
- kosher salt to taste
Cut the avocados in half lengthwise and remove the pit. Scoop the flesh of the avocado into a bowl. Mash the avocado with a fork, until mostly smooth.
Mix in remaining ingredients. Chill for 30 minutes to give the flavors a chance to meld.
